Economic Affairs (30 Nov 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: I was surprised that the hon. Member for Cornwall, North (Mr. Pardoe) should advocate devaluation, as a short time ago I read an article in which the leader of his party argued very strongly that this is precisely what we do not want. Is this another split in the Liberal Party? There was some truth in much of what the hon. Member said, but it is unfortunate that he should have begun with a...

Economic Affairs (30 Nov 1966)

Mr Ken Lomas: My hon. Friend has anticipated the next part of my speech. I was about to ask why paragraph 36 states: …payments…should be made…in instalments". Why is this specifically directed against public service employees and why does it not apply to everybody? Is it because the public service is being treated differently from the rest of society merely because the Treasury has greater control...

Early Day Motion (Amendment Corrigendum) (26 Jan 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I wish to draw your attention and that of the House to a mistake in the Order Paper for yesterday, 25th January, in that the Paper gives the names of four hon. Members, my hon. Friends the Members for Lewisham, West (Mr. Dickens), for Glasgow, Woodside (Mr. Carmichael) and for Glasgow, Provan (Mr. Hugh D. Brown), and myself as supporting the Amendment...

Orders of the Day — Defence (Navy) Estimates, 1967–68, Vote A: (1 Mar 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member for Harborough (Mr. Farr) began with an attack on my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Provan (Mr. Hugh D. Brown), accusing him of bringing the Navy into disrepute. The hon. Gentleman finished by saying that the outlook for the Navy was bad. I can think of no greater contradiction in terms. He should appreciate that the day of military grandeur is gone and in the modern...

Orders of the Day — Pay Increases (Crown Bedding Company) (5 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have been provoked into intervening briefly in this debate by the remarks of the hon. Member for Ormskirk (Sir D. Glover), who somehow manages to reduce many of the most important issues we debate in this House to comedy and farce. Opponents of this Order from the other side of the House have gone the whole range of farce, comedy and tragedy and, above all, of sheer, downright hypocrisy....

Orders of the Day — Pay Increases (Crown Bedding Company) (5 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: We can check HANSARD tomorrow to see whether my recollection is correct, but I recall the hon. Gentleman querying the point about this part of the Act expiring on 11th August whereas it clearly states in Section 25(4) that the period of 12 months covers such a period. While many of us on this side of the House may have our difference among ourselves, I for one take the view that it was...

Orders of the Day — Pay Increases (Crown Bedding Company) (5 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I return to the Order, Sir. I understand that the last pay increase agreement was made on 30th August, 1965, and that it expired 12 months later. If the increase sought did not fulfil the criteria laid down by the Government, then, in the interests of all other sections of workers in industry and everyone else in the country, these workers must take their turn in the queue. There must be no...

Orders of the Day — Pay Increases (Crown Bedding Company) (5 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: That may be so, but it does not alter the fact that once the information had been laid before the Minister there was nothing he could do but act in accordance with Part IV of the Act, which is what he did. I hope that it will be recognised that the making of this Order is not an attack on 20 people employed by Slumberland, or the Crown Bedding Company, but is an attempt to create a sense of...

Business of the House (6 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to Motion No. 460 standing in the names of myself and 54 other hon. Members? [That this House urges Her Majesty's Government to introduce in this session permissive legislation allowing the use of reflective number plates as an aid to road safety.] In view of the coming holiday season, when tragedies once more will occur on the roads, will my...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (17 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am sure that the whole of the Committee agrees that the maiden speech of the hon. Member for Glasgow, Pollok (Mr. Wright) was not only very well delivered, extremely fluent and very well argued, but contained just the right amount of humour and sincerity, on which all maiden speeches should be modelled. If the hon. Member went into controversial issues towards the end of his speech, I am,...

Reflective Number Plates (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to allow the use of reflective number plates on all road vehicles as an aid to road safety. In 1966, 8,000 people were killed on the roads of this country, a further 100,000 were seriously injured and almost 300,000 were slightly injured. A total of 468,000 vehicles was involved in those accidents, and of the people killed or seriously...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Road Safety Advisory Council (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will my right hon. Friend give a firm assurance that she will consult the Road Safety Advisory Council when she is formulating her future policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Vehicles (Reflective Number Plates) (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Minister of Transport (1) if she will give an assurance that she will introduce, within this or in the next Session of Parliament, legislation permitting the use of reflective number plates as an aid to road safety;

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Vehicles (Reflective Number Plates) (19 Apr 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my hon. Friend aware that, by the end of this year, about 40 million vehicles in the world will be equipped with these reflector safety plates, which is sufficient proof in itself? May I draw my right hon. Friend's attention to the Ten Minute Rule Bill which I introduced this morning, and hope that it will be given every consideration?

Orders of the Day — Road Transport Lighting Bill (31 May 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I should, first, like to express my very sincere thanks to my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary for his extremely kind words about the part which I played in helping to bring the Bill forward. In return, may I express my personal thanks both to him and to his Department for the help and guidance which I have received over the last few weeks. I couple with those thanks the name of the...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Application of Principal Act to Reflecting Material.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: It is a pity that the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Gresham Cooke) was not here on Second Reading when those two points were specifically dealt with. On the question of expense, I would refer him to Section 7 of the Road Research Laboratory Report (No. 44), published in January, for the third time: Cost of reflectorising. Ordinary registration plates are sold by the manufacturers to garages...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Application of Principal Act to Reflecting Material.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: But it would not be in dollars. The hon. Member specifically mentioned that it would be necessary to import from America, but I am told that they could be obtained from Germany. Those two points are adequately dealt with. The object of Clause 1 is to make it clear that a reflectorised number plate, or any kind of reflective material, is not so much a form of light but a form of warning of...

Orders of the Day — Clause 2. — (Power to Require or Authorise Rear Lights, etc., of Varying Colours.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: I was concerned about whether the numbers could he taken off very easily. The Road Research Laboratory test, which was done over two years on vehicles which were subjected to 80,000 miles of use on the road, showed that with normal wear and tear this did not happen. I am told that provided the numbers are put on properly they would not lift. Equally, I made the point that I should be in...

Orders of the Day — Clause 3. — (Control of Certain Illuminated Signalling Devices.) (12 Jun 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: The speed with which the Joint Parliamentary Secretary and his Department have handled the Bill almost makes them guilty of exceeding the speed limit. I say that because an early-day Motion on the subject was signed by a large number of hon. Members in January and February. my ten-minute rule Bill was given a First Reading on 19th April, this Measure received its Second Reading on 31st May,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Hooliganism (Football Matches) (26 Oct 1967)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will prosecute persons guilty of hooliganism at football matches under the Public Order Act of 1936, and thus allow magistrates to inflict heavier penalties on the offenders than at present.
